Felix is single and has a school-aged child. He lives in a rented house in just two rooms. The house is located in the area of Calacoto in the city of La Paz. He currently works for over eight hours a day as a director of a private company, since with his earnings he has to cover food and education expenses, rental and basic service fees.

He requires the loan to refurbish the apartment in which he is living at the moment, since it is very damp and that affects his health. Felix's dream is to boost his income so that he can have his own home and in this way improve his quality of life so things are more comfortable and safe for his child.

This is the first time he is requesting a loan from IMPRO and Kiva.

Additional Information


IMPRO is a small non-profit organization that has been offering micro credit to the working poor in the Bolivian cities of La Paz and El Alto since 1995. IMPRO’s goal is to fight poverty by offering loans to small business owners who cannot access credit through the regular banking system due to a lack of guarantees or collateral.

To ensure that everyone has access to credit, IMPRO maintains a low interest rate by minimizing operational costs. IMPRO’s partnership with Kiva, which began in 2007, has allowed IMPRO to expand its services while maintaining these low interest rates.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
